Charla Nash, of Stamford, CT, was critically injured by a chimpanzee in 2009. Nash lost her face and hands and in 2010 underwent a face transplant. The chimp, named Travis, was kept by Nash's friend Sandra Herold and weighed 200-pounds. Nash is applying to sue the state of Connecticut for allowing a dangerous animal to reside in Herold's home.
